What’s your most embarrassing experience?
Raft3r has many. Lemme share with you the most recent one.
On an early Monday morning, Raft3r was on an elevator ride with an elderly male office mate. He looked familiar. So I immediately struck a conversation with him.
In that short span of time, we talked about his family and other personal stuff I knew about him.
Things were going pretty well until it was time for me to get off the elevator. I bid him farewell and called him by his name.
That’s when it happened.
Before Raft3r could step out of the elevator, I heard the old gentleman say: “By the way, my name is NOT Vic.”
I turned red. Raft3r immediately apologized and blamed everything on mistaken identity.
I thought the person I was speaking with was ‘Vic’ who was recently honored by the top honchos in the office.
Man, Raft3r even congratulated the old guy on the elevator. I was totally humiliated.
I went on with my errand and put the whole incident behind me. Ten minutes later, fate was kind enough to let Raft3r run into him again and still on the elevator.
I tried to turn away but second guessed myself since the gesture was too obvious. Raft3r stepped in the elevator. I gave him a quick smile. The old man went on and said he knew ‘Vic’ personally.
Raft3r remained mum and silently prayed to make the elevator ride go faster.
Note to self: Stop talking to strangers.
